My Brother's Husband (Japanese), Vol. 1 by Gengoroh Tagame
Already in its
fourth fifth printing, gay bondage manga master Gengoroh Tagame's first non-erotic young adult manga Otôto no Otto ("My Brother's Husband") has taken Japan by storm. Serialized in the general audience magazine Monthly Action Comics, “My Brother’s Husband” is set in a typical Japanese suburb, where the everyday is suddenly turned on its head with the arrival of an unexpected in-law.
Awkward introductions turn into a sentimental education of unfamiliar tropes: gay marriage, time-honored traditions of mourning the dead, Western traditions and even tempura sushi! Soon, Yaichi, Yaichi’s tween daughter Kana, and Mike form a unique and merry family. My Brother’s Husband Vol. 1 is comprised of the first seven chapters of a now-complete series Monthly Action magazine.
